Zlatá Praha (Golden Prague) (page 1/2)

details...

Pictures from Zlatá Praha, which means, Golden Prague. Zlatá Praha was an illustrated Czech magazine published from 1864 to 1929, with a large gap between 1865 and 1884. I have volume XIV, 1897, which I bought in 2014 at Antikvariát Dlážděná, a bookshop in Prague with very reasonable prices and only a short walk from the main railway station.

I am only scanning images where the artist died more than 70 years ago, so all of the images here from Golden Prague are out of copyright.

Zvetly Fialky (Violets were blooming)

This is the second of a triptych of pictures by the Czech artist Ferdinand Engelmüler; the three pictures were printed on a double-page spread at the centre of the bound volume for 1897 and entitled z povidek stareho parku (Stories of a secular park). A poem by Lord Byron might accompany them; I am not certain, and will work on confirming that; I can’t read Czech and Google Translate isn’t vey reliable. [more...] [$]
